    If I understand correctly, you want to use Perl in the Visual Studio IDE? (I assume by specifying the languages, you mean the Express versions?)

    HTH: Visual Perl

    I'm a peripheral visionary... I can see into the future, but just way off to the side.

    Like we tell people in the ChatterBox all the time, don't ask to ask a question, just ask the question!

    Absent an actual question, I can only referer you to perlembed if you wish to embed Perl into your process. Another alternative is to run perl as a child process.

    Update: Oh, you simply meant Visual Studio, the IDE.

    I'm assuming, like nefigah, that you want to use Visual Studio as a Perl-targeted IDE. I didn't know about Visual Perl (which seems quite neat), but another option for a Windows Perl IDE is Active State's Komodo (, not free)

    As a side note, if you were looking to upgrade your Visual Studio Express to Standard, you might want to hit one of Microsoft's launch events for Visual Studio 2008 (and SQL Server and Server). For attending you get a license for the standard version, and the developer sessions were okay when I went. Link:

      And there's the venerable Eclipse, a multi-language IDE, with the EPIC Perl plugin.

      Ramblings and references
      The Code that can be seen is not the true Code
      I haven't found a problem yet that can't be solved by a well-placed trebuchet
      Komodo Edit is free!

      It is not a full blown IDE, but it has nice enough features, so it is really worth its money.


      A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
